Strengths:    Love chain gard! Never acsodently derailed it. Handles well on all trails. This bike is also exsreamoly tough, true story my dad drove over the entire back end with a cx9 suv and didn't bend bike at all.

Weaknesses:    Skips gears if hit to hard or shifted at the wrong time.

Bottom Line:   
Love this bike even though I'm looking to upgrade to start rideing at a higher lever, Ive loved rideing this hardtail bike. Great bike for everything, urban, singal track, down hill an even some cross country. I would highly recomend this bike to enyone looking for a great starting mountain bike to get them where they need to go in one peace without breaking the bank.

8,934th "Hi, I'm new here!" thread

Took it out to the easier trails at Government Canyon (San Antonio) last weekend and had a blast. Gave it a good cleaning and other than typical wear and tear it cleaned u ... Read More »

Haro Thread 8 Wheels?

I think I'm going to get on a DJ bike this season so I went down to the shop and decided since I'll also be riding around town and on some mellow FR trails I'd want it to be geared. The only geared DJ they had was the Haro Thread 8, first DJ bike I've been on and it feels so much like my 20 its am ... Read More »

2008 Haro Thread 8 suspension question?

I'm considering purchasing a 08 Thread 8 and can't seem to figure out if the Marz Dirt Jumper 3 80mm that comes stock on the bike is adjustable? I really like the way the bike handled, but the shock was way to squishy and I can't seem to find any businesses online that carry the firm springs. Any i ... Read More »
